Now this is a winner, Moira. Very effective indeed.

I think I prefer this to the mono version... the colours are balanced well, and differentiate the shapes a little more clearly.
The effect is more 3D than the mono.

Thanks guys. Of the pictures that I took that day, this was the one that jumped out for mono conversion, but colour has grown on me. I like the delicacy of the blue / greys. Delicacy is not something that I normally associate with Tyneside.

A completely different animal compared with the b&w conversion.
Here, my eye is drawn to the blue bridge which takes us from the tower block up to the mysterious area on the right. Details I did not register in the previous image.

echoing others: prefer this to mono as it looks much less flat and the colours go together rather well

Landscapers go out in search of inversions: clearly Woollybills do, as well. Just of a different sort...

Works in colour too, but I prefer the mono, I think that I’m finding that triangle of grey concrete at the top too intrusive, distracting, here. What I associate with Tyneside is a bottle of Newky Broon”

Yes, this time the colour wins over! Well spotted and presented.

I like this much better than the mono. The dark mass at the top is not quite so intrusive in color.

Interesting to see this in colour, I prefered the mono I think. I like the nod to Paul Simon.

Top right is mud, not concrete. This was low tide...
